Because senior executives have access to the most sensitive and valuable information at a company, non-compete and confidentiality clauses are usually part of their employment agreements. But when they leave, employees may try to dispute these agreements in court. In one such action commenced in Westchester County Supreme Court’s Commercial Division, Andrew Schriever and Troy Lipp of Cuddy & Feder’s litigation team successfully persuaded the court of the potential harm to their client if its former vice-president was allowed to work for a competing company and disclose the client’s confidential and proprietary information while the suit was pending. They were able to obtain a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction enjoining the former employee from doing so.
